OMG!! The first trailer — OUR VERY FIRST LOOK, IN FACT — for The Hunger Games was JUST released … and I have to tell you, it is AMAZING! I don’t think I’ve ever gotten chills from watching a movie trailer before … but this first look at The Hunger Games absolutely gave me goosebumps from beginning to end. You must drop EVERYTHING you are doing right now and watch this trailer in full below — IMMEDIATELY!
I understand that trailer intentionally only shows scenes from the first half of the movie in order to preserve the mystery of the actual Hunger Games themselves (as featured in the film). I think this trailer hits ALL the right notes to shoot anticipation and excitement for the film into the stratosphere. When Katniss volunteers for Prim, I actually shivered! It’s so fantastic seeing the scenes we’ve read in the book come alive in this video trailer. Lionsgate, as far as I’ve seen thus far, is doing an EXCELLENT job bringing The Hunger Games alive. Obvs I cannot wait to see more … but this first trailer is EXTREMELY satisfying for me. What do y’all think? Which scene is your fave?
